Kiva Lending Team: KISS FROM THE WORLD - travel & people magazine
We loan because...
Are you getting ready to leave? Do you know that you will meet someone in the place you’re headed to who is not as fortunate as you? Someone who is living a difficult situation, maybe one that is really dramatic?
Every time you travel, you have a chance to encounter unfortunate conditions that are benefiting from local non-profit organizations working in the background.
So why don’t you take advantage of your trip to give a little piece of a dream to someone who needs your contribution?
Your trip will become more meaningful, your horizon will be widened, the hopes of others become your own.
Our names are Domenico and Giulia and we are speaking out of experience. Because we do this on a regular basis.
How is it done? Before you leave, organise a little collection of funds among your friends and relatives. If you are the kind of person who is very organised and leaves nothing to chance, look for and choose a local organization before your departure. Otherwise, you can find one wherever you choose to go. There are schools, orphanages, hospitals, medical centres and associations filled with volunteers who are fighting against hunger, war and illness every day. Meeting these volunteers is an experience that will paint any trip with the colours of humanity. And it will become a memorable trip.
Come on, participate. Record your trip with videos and photographs and let us know about the associations that you helped. Getting the word out about their work through their internet sites is a small, yet great contribution.
And remember, to quote Einstein: “ we must become champions of humanity”…
Kiss From The World is a unique online magazine packed with videos and photos taken all over the world, extraordinary journeys and one-of-a-kind encounters.
Kiss From The World makes you the traveller, taking you to the heart of the action, into the depths of forests, to interviews with hardened gang leaders, into a world of unknown tribes, war zones, exotic parties…
But it also takes you on a journey into daily life, and the extraordinary normality of the world.
Kiss From The World, the people
The idea for the magazine came to life in 2007 when Domenico Pacifico, photojournalist, started sharing online his exclusive reportage. Domenico and his partner Giulia travel the globe, documenting their journeys and the people they meet.
To travel, to film, to photograph: Domenico’s techniques as a reporter and his curiosity as a traveller to discover the cultures, ethnicities and religions of the people he meets means he can bring all of these strands together on his website. You might not notice the people in his videos and photos if you pass them on the street. Here, they become vivid and real.
Kiss From The World, the channels
iPeople: on Kiss From The World, places matter, but above all, people matter, as this channel shows. iPeople is rich with stirring encounters with men and women who are all special in their worlds and their daily lives.
Tribe tells the story of meetings in the depths of forests, far from civilization, and of different ways of living, even when surprisingly near major urban areas.
Danger Zone tells stories of areas best avoided by the traveller. It speaks of dangerous neighbourhoods, countries at war, and realities where the people are rootless, and there is no law.
Sexy World is a journey into the “hottest” places on the globe. Take a dip in a world of parties and overwhelming sensuality.
And then there’s Kaleidoscope – quite simply photos and music, and Post-it - images without comments.
Animals takes you on a journey into natural habitats and reserves, to discover surprising aspects of animal life, told by the people who observe them every day - either for passion or profession.
And then there’s Travel & help, where you’ll find out about the most vulnerable people that Domenico and Giulia met and helped during their journeys, either directly or via small local organizations.
